Pre-packed Hospital Bags

Life can just be so busy can’t it? It can be so hard to find time to do everything. On the first baby I found I had a little more time to pack the baby bag as I spent months grabbing bits, but on the second baby between full time working, having a one year old and being pregnant I was exhausted the whole time! I eventually got the hospital bag packed and sorted but to do that I had to go to lots of different shops and order things online and so on!

Another popular option is a Baby Box. I have heard that the baby box is associated with the reduction of SIDS rates… “The use of Baby Boxes has been credited with helping reduce infant mortality rates in Finland, where they have been in use for over 75 years”.  There’s a bit more information on it here from the HSE. There is an Irish company who sells the boxes and the contents inside of it; The Stork Box , and they also sell bag and content options.
